Creamy, sweet and bursting matcha flavour. This “matchamisu” is irresistible for everyone.
Even Italians would replace their classic tiramisu with this one.
Tip! If you make this matcha tiramisu with kids use no alcohol if you want a stronger taste of alcohol use 4 teaspoons of rum but no more. Too much alcohol can dominate the taste.
Cooking time 5 min
Total time 5 hours
- 6 egg yolks
- 150 gr granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon of rum
- 500 gr mascarpone
- 1 cup of water
- 3 teaspoons of koko riko tea matcha

In a bowl put together the 6 egg yolks and sift 150 gr of sugar together, then mix until it’s smooth .
Make an au bain marie with the egg/sugar batter and continue to beat the batter until it becomes yellowish and creamy. Au bain-marie is when you put your bowl over a saucepan with water that is barely simmering.
Be careful! Do not overcook the eggs
Put the mascarpone in a large bowl and add the freshly made custard ( eggs/sugar)
Combine 1 cup of hot water (80C) and 3 teaspoons of matcha powder together then add 1 teaspoon of rum.
One at a time quickly dip both sides of the ladyfingers in the matcha mixture until soaked.
Place the ladyfingers on the bottom of your baking dish.
Spread half of the mascarpone custard batter over the ladyfingers and smooth out the surface.
Dip the remaining ladyfingers and custard.
Top at the end with the last custard smooth out the top and dust matcha green tea.
Cover with a sheet the matcha tiramisu and put in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
Decorate your tiramisu with beautiful strawberries or other fruit to finish the wow-effect!
